This is the first recipe I made when I initially became interested in cooking. No one can resist the creamy filling inside the crispy potato skins.—Cyndy Gerken, Naples, Florida

  • 8 large baking potatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons minced chives, divided


  1. Scrub and pierce potatoes; rub with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add the cheddar cheese, whipping cream, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, mash the pulp with cheese mixture. Stir in 2 tablespoons chives. Spoon into potato shells. Place on baking sheets. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining chives.
